Cat shooter - owners beware

Hi EFers

In Schwellbrunn a **** shot a cat in the head with an air rifle.
Thank heavens the vet could remove the projectile from kitty's head and kitty's still alive doing as well as can be expected under the circumstances.
It's not known who's doing the shooting, so be careful and watch out for your outdoor cats!

Beware - certain comments are simply
Which in particular do you have in mind? Do they include the one that speaks of murder?

Just checked - the one I had in mind was thankfully deleted.

- and they're not worth repeating.

You only need to worry after it has been shot 8 times

I feel like a faux-internet rage session.

What were the comments?

Re: Cat shooter - owners beware

How horrid.. We've had a neighbor putting out poisonous foods around where I live and my cat is an outdoors cat, so I was living in fear of him never coming home basically. Eventually that neighbor was warned and he stopped (as far as I know). Wished there were harsher consequences for animal abusers and killers, but even when you establish causation and actus reus they seem to get away with it too easily.
Glad that there are also lots of amazing people out there who donate their time toward animals in need. This vid is on the Blind Cat Rescue, which is an organization caring for blind cats and FIV, FELV + cats. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWHz_5ss-r0
